Europe: The Forgotten Continent by YNot1989 Europe: The Forgotten Continent by YNot1989
2110: Six decades have past since the end of the last world war, and in that time Western Europe has continued its decline. In the Intermarium, the alliance of Eastern European Nations that evolved out of the old Visigrad Group, prosperity continues, and Warsaw's grip stretches as far East as the Urals. In the South, Turkey's empire has once again faded, but the Barcelona based Mediterranean Union has filled the Vacuum to balance the ambitions of Egypt. Countries have fractured, the continent remains divided, but history has been turned on its head. Old colonies have come to claim the old countries as a new war brews across the Atlantic. Since the Islands' devastation at the hands of the Turks and the Flood, Britain has become little more than an American colony,the majority of its citizens now live on America soil. And in the Iberian peninsula the fractious era of civil wars have ended, a land stabilized by Brazilian and Mexican forces, set on securing a cultural and economic sphere across the Atlantic.

Some say it is karmic justice that Europe has become the very thing they tried to turn other countries into, puppets to the great powers of the Earth, utterly devoid of agency, and unlikely to wield any real power for many centuries to come.

Finally a hypothetical map that retains Portugal as independent! And with the bonus of its real territory. Every single other map merges Portugal to Spain, dumb.

maybe that's the reason behind the apparent will of the europeans to sabotagem their own future time and time again...it's almost comical...and also tragic.

Interesting map and not implausible, especially like the idea behind the Intermarium, but can't see why Serbia and Croatia are shacked up together again, or did Serbia invade again?

That's mostly just to illustrate the craziness of the Baltics.

Its called the forgotten continent to illustrate that people no longer think of Europe as a continent anymore.
